Alejandro Junger, M.D., graduated from medical school in Uruguay and moved to New York for his postgraduate training. The dramatic change in his lifestyle and diet led to him developing irritable bowel syndrome and depression.

He began a search to find the solution to his health problems and discovered the benefits of cleansing and detoxification diets.

In Clean Gut he reveals how our general body health is connected to one important area of our body – the gut. This book is a manual to help you cleanse and heal your gut to recover from chronic illness and maintain optimal health.

It is a more expanded and complete program compared with his earlier book, Clean.

Clean Gut Basics




Junger explains how the root cause of almost all chronic disease begins in your gut. He says that most diseases – including heart disease, cancer, asthma, diabetes, insomnia, depression, and arthritis – can be traced back to your gut.

In addition many other health problems that can be related to a damaged gut including:

  • Fatigue
  • Aches and pains
  • Allergies
  • Mood swings
  • Bad breath
  • Body odor
  • Lack of libido
  • Eczema
  • Constipation

Simply eating a healthy diet isn’t enough to overcome these problems. However they can all be reversed by following his specially designed gut repair program.

Phase 1: The 21-Day Diet

  1. You will drink a liquid breakfast.
  2. Lunch and dinner is chosen from recipes provided in the book.
  3. The diet focuses on foods that are low in sugar and easy to digest.
  4. At the same time you will take a variety of nutritional supplements to heal your gut.

Phase 2: Reintroduction

  1. You will slowly reintroduce foods back into your diet over one week.
  2. This helps you identify foods that don’t support your long-term gut health.
  3. You also create your own dietary blueprint to suit your needs and lifestyle.

    My husband was relentcy diagnosed with coeliacs disease and now has to be on a gluten free diet. While we’ve found breakfast and dinner to be not too big a problem, we are struggling with quick and easy lunch(box) ideas! The trouble with most gluten free products we’ve tried is that they’re:a) VERY expensive; andb) not very tasty!We have a breadmaker and have made our own bread but it is very dry and dense and not entirely appetising!Any ideas??

    I bought your book because I am looking for something that will help my stomach. After I eat I hurt and I feel that it’s what I’m eating. I purchased your book, read it and am getting ready to try this out!

  • Jacqui Kelley

    Purchased book. I’m 50 and healthy – thought I would try to get rid of toxins- and limit my dairy, sugar intake. I figured it cannot hurt!
    Starting tomorrow.
